Hey you! I want you to see the beeyouteeful vintage dress I found at Bad Cholla Vintage. Thanks to the lovely Miss Megan are in order for another perfect Etsy transaction!

The teal shade of the dress is even more beautiful in person… and I was thrilled to find that it fits like it was made just for me. It is a maxi dress, so I will most likely be shortening it at least a few inches – one can only wear so much polyester in the summer months before one does not smell as fresh as a lady should. I can’t wait to pair it with a peacock feather hairpiece and some disco-worthy heels!

Happy shopping!

Hey ladies! Here’s another one of my Etsy treasures… kind of makes you crave a Dreamsicle, right? This lovely 1970’s sherbet-colored dress is from Miss Megan at Bad Cholla Vintage. Please please do yourself a favor and check out all her lovely pieces! Her prices range from pretty inexpensive to out-of-my-price-range for her most gorgeous items – but I’ve gotten several wonderful bargains (this dress was $42 including shipping) and I love to visit her store often.

I do plan on making a few alterations to this dress… it is in wonderful condition but I can’t pull off head-to-toe orange. I’ll be shortening the sleeves and taking the hem up from a maxi length to knee length. I plan on adding strappy gold heels and a vintage gold clutch along with my new trademark: false lashes and some shimmery eye makeup. Instant summer outfit!

Happy shopping!

Hello ladies! Just wanted to share another one of my Etsy treasures with you… I snagged this little number from Miss Amber at Peg & Amber:

It’s adorable the way it is, but I’m going to remove all the little purple bows – I like little purple bows, but I think this dress would be much more wearable and less costume-y without them. I have plans for this dress… stay posted to be the first to be in on the secret!

Happy shopping!

Going Green

Dollface! I found you something gorgeous to wear for your next event:

This dress is TO DIE FOR. It’s got everything you need for a party. Shine, shape, dazzling color (it comes in several different dazzling colors, just FYI)… just perfect! You can find it on pinupgirlclothing.com – one of my favorite sites to drool over. Their selection doesn’t always include a lot of bargains, but you’re guaranteed to find tons of beautiful pieces.

Happy shopping!
